Now that I am old, will she still take my tooth?

Tooth fairy traditions are heard, said and believed by children all over this world. Some believe that the broken tooth is bartered for treats such as chocolates, candies, etc. with the tooth fairy whereas some believe a wish is fulfilled instead of the tooth. Different regions, different tales.

However, the most believable tale was one where children were told that a tooth fairy will take away their tooth to make them feel at ease while losing that tooth.
Well, even an adult has to lose his or her tooth sometimes! It is when the tooth gets damaged. A good dentist is a modern version of a tooth fairy and thus, eases out all the discomfort behind the loss of the tooth. Whether it is a root canal or dental implants, such dentists will have a very soft touch at it.

Keep Bad Breath Away… Bring People Closer

Bad breath is one of the biggest turn-offs ever. I know people who absolutely cannot stand a stinking mouth and can walk out amidst a conversation because it is bothering them so much. But isn’t it difficult to always have a fresh breath?

We are out and about the entire day, eating different kinds of foods and drinking beverages, that all lead to bad breath. And if you are a smoker, having a mouth that does not stink feels like a distant dream. If you are one such person, who is always conscious about their breath,


follow these easy tips from dental experts to ensure that your mouth always smells good.

1. Brush your teeth. This is something we have been hearing since the time we had only one tooth. And this is truly the best mantra to have good teeth and maintain overall dental hygiene. If your teeth are clean, you won’t even have bad breath issues. Some people have oral bad odor problems more than others. If you are one such person, you need to brush more often, say after every meal.

2. Along with brushing, flossing is equally important. This is because there are some places between the teeth where food gets stuck and the toothbrush cannot reach there. When you floss, you remove these food particles and also other contaminants that can damage your teeth. Using mouthwash can also ensure that your breath feels fresh.

3. Bacteria get collected on the surface of our tongues, especially the top rough surface. This can also be a reason for bad breath. This is why you must clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner every single day.

4. Avoiding some food items that cause bad breath, like onion and garlic, is also a smart way of controlling bad mouth odor. Also, avoid food and beverages that contain high amounts of sugar as sugar ferments bacteria.

5. Eating certain fruits and vegetables like apples, lettuce, carrots, pears and raw cucumber can aid fresh breath. These also have antioxidants that boost dental health.

6. Chewing gum increases the flow of saliva in the mouth, which washes the bacteria away. Ensure that you chew sugarless gum. Chewing gum is also a good alternative to mints that are full of sugar and hence aid bacteria. Ironical isn’t it?

7. Drinking water throughout the day is a very healthy habit. It has many health benefits; it keeps your skin and hair looking great and also can help battle bad breath. This is because dehydration also causes our breath to smell foul.

8. Avoid drinking a lot of coffee as it not only damages and stains your teeth, but also makes your breath smell funny. Tobacco is also something that you must completely avoid if you want healthy teeth and want to stay cancer-free, of course.

Keeping bad breath away basically requires you to take care of your teeth and gums and maintain good oral hygiene. You must also visit a family dentist in Burlington regularly to make sure that your teeth are healthy, shiny and your breath is pleasant.



6 Simple tips to keep your teeth pearly white

Have you noticed some people who do not smile freely when being clicked? We all know the reason for that, don’t we? It is the yellow stains on their teeth. Your smile is such an important aspect of your personality and not being able to share that with the world is like holding back. If you follow these 10 simple tips, you never have to hide your teeth again.

This goes without saying that you need to brush your teeth twice a day. If you drink a lot of coffee, you should brush more often. There are certain foods that cause the teeth to stain. If you consume any of these food items, it is advisable to brush immediately. This will help you teeth stay whiter naturally.55_brush-18729_960_720.456x0-is
Apple Cider Vinegar works great as a stain remover too. It can even remove the stubborn stains left on the teeth due to smoking and drinking coffee. The only drawback though is that it takes some time to show results. You will have to wait at least a month before you can start seeing whiter teeth.

Using coconut oil is another natural way of keeping teeth whiter. A theory suggests that if you apply coconut oil to your teeth after you brush, twice a day, your teeth can become whiter. You can also put a few drops of this oil on your toothbrush and brush your teeth with it.

Coconut oil also has antimicrobial properties and hence can make your gums healthy too.f you have already done damage to your teeth, you have use teeth whiteners to make them shiny again. If you do not want to use the whiteners that are available in the market, you can even prepare one at home using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.

Mix small amounts of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and make it into a paste. Make sure that you add enough hydrogen peroxide to this mix as too much baking soda can damage the enamel of the tooth. Use this paste to brush your teeth. Hydrogen peroxide also has anti-bacterial properties and hence kills the germs in your mouth and keeps the gums cleaner.

Certain foods help in whitening your teeth. Eating apples, spinach, broccoli, celery and carrots can actually reduce the stains on the teeth and make them whiter. A few celebrities have also promoted strawberries as an effective teeth whitening formula. But in this case, you do not have to eat it, but rather squish them and rub it over your teeth.


A smart way of avoiding teeth staining is to drink through a straw. Liquids like red wine and cranberry juice can stain the teeth. When you consume these beverages using a straw, they do not come in contact with the teeth and hence cannot cause them to stain.

Many of these treatments take some time to show results. If you want instant teeth whitening, you should consult a dentist. In the meanwhile, you can use a few tricks to make your teeth appear whiter. Choosing a darker shade of lipstick can make your teeth look more yellow, whereas wearing diamonds can highlight the whiteness of your teeth.


My dental treatment made me say “NO MORE TOOTH ACHES!”

That Monday morning, when I sat for breakfast, my hand went on my cheek putting a force on my molar tooth and my wife found me saying, “Ouch! This tooth is killing me big time!”

We both believed that it must be because of the overload of chocolate and ice cream that I had last night. I felt awkward for the first time because of my sweet tooth. I’d always savored sweet eatables but, thought I should reduce the frequency now considering the intensity of the soreness I felt. I did have a ‘mild sensitivity problem’ for which I resolved to use a toothpaste formulated to care for sensitive teeth to get over with it but, this time, it was quite different and definitely more aching.

Anyway, my wife gave me a few cloves and asked me to compress it between my teeth every once in a while whenever I felt the pain. I found myself chewing clove all the time even in the office. This continued for three or four more days until my secretary told me that it was high time I consulted a dentist because too much clove is also not good for health especially when it is not helping the tooth to be alright.

So, finally my wife researched and we decided to go the Ralhan Dentist in Burlington to get my tooth diagnosed.


We met Dr. Anil Ralhan and he assured me that whatever it is with my tooth, I will gradually be relieved of all the troubles and pain. After the diagnose, they found out that the pulp had become infected. My wife got a little worried when the Dr. told that I needed a root canal. But, without any ado, we went along with the surgery as they explained us properly why it was necessary. They told us that this therapy has the power to prevent teeth from experiencing further damage down the road as it involves cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth. Hence, it was undoubtedly the best thing to remove my toothache, permanently.

Then finally, on a nice Saturday morning I had my root canal done. I saw the cap being made on the same day as my root canal. This made me not to wear a temporary cap and then come back again for the permanent one. The pain was definitely lesser than that I thought I’d have. I was amazed at such a prompt and personal care. Now, after restoration, my tooth functions just properly and let alone the pain, even my sensitivity is non-existent.

You don’t go to a dentist often. So, when you do go to one, choose wisely. No need to avoid chocolates and ice creams anymore, because no more tooth aches!


“My son can eat candies again!”

Halloween is a time when children tend to receive a lot of candies and chocolates. My son was always excited for dressing up in his ‘Trick-or-Treat’ costume to travel from house to house asking for treats. It is a tradition I personally loved to observe.

However, since two-three weeks, my son was experiencing toothaches in different teeth every time. There were two weeks left for Halloween. It made me worry because I really didn’t wish to stop my son from enjoying this time of the year.

Eating candies after discussing who got what was one of my favorite observations in the children. I just couldn’t imagine my son not doing this year. So, I finally decided to consult a dentist.

Turns out it isn’t very easy to find a good dentist in Burlington. On a friend’s suggestion, we went to ‘Rahlan Dental’ to inquire what exactly the problem with my son’s teeth was. We were pleased to hear that their consultation fees were actually nothing. It was a free dental check-up. I had these nightmares that candies will rot my son’s teeth. We asked the doctor whether it was something serious or something which will pass like a week’s fling. The doctor informed us that the parts of teeth that are visible are safe from the acids secreted by anything sweet as they are washed away when we drink water or brush your teeth. But, the problem begins when sweets get lodged in the crevices of your teeth. This way the bacteria gets more time to feed on them. Hence, I learned that the quantity of sugar (especially through soft caramel candies which stick to the teeth) that we ingest is not an important factor but, the quantity of time it stays in the mouth.

The doctor advised us to go through a ‘hygiene service’ that they did as they strongly believed in taking every precaution possible, to prevent future diseases and disorders from existing inside your mouth.

They had already examined my son’s teeth. The next step was to clean and assess them.

Then, they began with their professional work which included the following

1. Dental cleanings

2. Assessments

3. Dental x-rays

4. Teeth whitening

5. Laser services

6. Custom sports mouth guards

After this, they even recommended ways through which we can improve our dental care at home, and even answered all of questions and concerns. My son learned that to break down the process which starts after we consume anything sweet, one should wash his/her teeth thoroughly. Also, many popular candies have sugar-free versions which make it impossible for the bacteria to exist.

So, whatever you eat, the concern is to keep good dental habits and keep visiting a dentist once in a while but, never stop celebrating with candies and chocolates. It’s been a week since my son has gone through the dental hygiene clean up and his teeth are absolutely fit to consume all sorts of candies. So, ‘Happy Halloween!’
